Full Description
Welcome to Orange Tree House where we specialise in making your wedding day one to truly remember. We fell in love with Orange Tree House, situated in the pretty historical village of Greyabbey on the shores of Strangford Lough, over 8 years ago. Since then we have restored the beautiful 1820's stone barn style church and transformed it into a unique conference and wedding venue. When we opened in October 2014, for the first time in over 110 years, a bride and groom celebrated their wedding here.   We believe in "Your day, your way". Whether you opt for a traditional, elegant wedding or take a more alternative approach, we will endeavor to accommodate your plans. Orange Tree House is a totally private venue but, unlike most other private venues, we also provide all of your catering, bar, furniture, tableware etc. so all you need to do is choose your date, menu and drinks then relax and enjoy your day.   As well as having the beautiful stone barn style banqueting room with its exposed beams at your disposal, you and your guests can enjoy the Orangerie with its open fire. You can sip a cocktail or two in our stunning new guest lounge which overlooks Strangford Lough (a designated area of outstanding natural beauty)and onwards towards Whiterock Bay, with the Dromara Hills and the Mourne Mountains as a backdrop. Here you can also relax and enjoy the amazing sunsets, whatever the weather.   The function room can comfortably accommodate up to 132 guests for ceremonies and dinner with room for extra evening guests up to a total of around 160. We have over 100 bed spaces within a 5 minute radius, many within walking distance and are located half an hour from Belfast.   We would be delighted to show you around and discuss your plans.

I knew from the start this was an amazing venue.
We would just like to say a very big thank you to everyone in Orange Tree House involved in Rebecca and Adam’s wedding. From the first appointment when Rebecca and Adam brought myself and her Dad to show us where they had chosen for their wedding, we were more than impressed. We received such a warm welcome and I knew from the start this was an amazing venue. A special thank you to Sian and then Chelsea who were very attentive to all our queries and requests, Chelsea towards the big day you could not have been more helpful. A big big thank you to the wonderful Michael, you put us all at such ease in the lead up to and especially on the big day. You really could not have done anymore for us with attention to every detail. Thank you so much for dealing with everything so professionally. The comments from family and friends over the last few days speaks volumes describing it one of the most beautiful venues with the most delicious food. Thank you to all the catering staff and waiting staff for such excellent food and service. Thanks again

We honestly couldn't have picked a better venue!
Now that myself and Scott have come down from cloud 9 (slightly) we would like to sincerely thank you for an absolutely fantastic wedding day. We honestly couldn't have picked a better venue! It was stunning and was everything we wanted and more! Nothing was ever an issue and everyone was of great help, including yourself Chelsea as I tortured you on a regular basis. The run up to the wedding was so relaxed, you answered every question I had with no hesitation. The day of the wedding was magical. You accommodated all our suppliers allowing them to create the most wonderful set up for our wedding. Yous looked after us like royalty on the day, ensuring myself, the groom and the father of the bride was happy with everything. You took control of it all, allowing me and the groom to enjoy our day with having nothing to worry about. The food was absolutely delicious and the guests are still commenting on how wonderful it was. Massive thank you to Micheal and Katie, who were extremely friendly, welcoming and looked after us and our guests so perfectly. We are so sad that our day is over as we enjoyed every minute of it. Its a credit to all the team for the exceptional hospitality that we received. We will definitely recommend yourselves to any future brides and grooms. A special mention to the little puppy teddy who made my day ❤️ Thanks again so much for everything The Dennison's

The attention to detail was positively remarkable
Dear Everyone working at Orange Tree House, My wife, Holly Anne, and I were married at Orange Tree on June 15th, 2022. To say that we were deeply and abundantly blessed by all of you would be a dramatic understatement. From the moment we arrived on Monday to walk through our day with Micheal and Chelsea, we felt so loved, seen, and cared for. Every time we asked for something that might be a bit difficult, like specific cheeses for the charcuterie or a different kind of room set up for the wedding breakfast or a certain kind of potato for the salads/sides, we were made to feel like we hadn't asked for anything at all. You were so accommodating and kind. On the day of our wedding, we felt held and known. The attention to detail, every last detail, was positively remarkable. You were all on top of everything. Always present and happy to help. You went above and beyond, doing so with such a joyful spirit. At the reception, having the chef come out to explain each course and what everything was was a delightful touch. Each and every person remarked to us how delicious our breakfast was. 'Best wedding food of their life' was a common refrain. After the reception, the help with cleaning up was tremendous. De-constructing our chuppah and getting everything settled and sorted was a tremendous relief. It took such a weight off to have everything taken care of. The space you have created with Orange Tree is astonishingly special. The building is stunning and clearly so well loved and cared for. The views and the scene on and of the lough is breathtaking. A significant portion of the space being so set apart special, though, is all of you. Each and every dear soul we encountered at Orange Tree was kind, patient, and generous. Always happy to be of assistance. We never for a moment were made to feel like a bother, even when we knew we were being difficult. From the bottom of hearts, we say thank you. Yesterday would not have been what it was without each and every one of you bringing forth your unique gifts. For the rest of our life, June 15th will hold an extraordinarily special place in our life and relationship. And that is in part thanks to all of you. With love and gratitude, Holly Anne and noah

The venue itself is just a dream location.
Hi guys. Sonya and I would just love to thank the team at orange tree for everything they did for us on our wedding day last week. From the moment we booked till the day itself, Michael, Chelsea and the team made it so easy for us. On the run up to the day, Chelsea was on hand to answer everything we needed. She organised everything so our day was exactly like we had planned it in our heads. Michael was the star of the show on the day making sure we could enjoy every moment. Anything we needed was done to 200% and he was 10 steps ahead of us. The food was out of this world. Every person we chatted to kept saying how amazing the dishes were. But the venue itself is just a dream location. We honestly can't thank you enough for making it one of the happiest days of our lives. Lots of love Sonya and chris.

We felt like royalty and everyone loved the venue!
A long overdue massive THANKYOU all for the most amazing venue with the most amazing staff. We felt like royalty and everyone loved the venue , surroundings, food and Garreth and I just loved every single minute of our day and wouldn’t change a thing. From initial correspondence everything was so slick and smooth running, no question was too much and we felt so at ease knowing you would all take care of everything and we had nothing to worry about on the day. Michael was absolutely beyond words. From our set up meeting to the actual day he made sure we were at ease and ensured we were happy and all was going according to plan and time schedule. Staff were polite professional and food outstanding. We cannot thank you and recommend you highly enough. Thank you again for everything and giving us the day of our dreams as we joined our 2 families.
